Sharks are an important part of our life support system!
The frightening reality is, like them or not, sharks play a crucial role on this planet. Our existence is, in part, dependent on theirs. Sharks are a critical component in an ecosystem that provides 1/3 of our world with food, produces more oxygen than all the rainforests combined, removes half of the atmosphere’s manmade carbon dioxide (greenhouse gas), and controls our planet’s temperature and weather. As the apex predators of the oceans, they keep other marine life in healthy balance. Remove sharks and that balance is seriously upset. Studies are indicating that regional elimination of sharks can cause disastrous effects including the collapse of fisheries and the death of coral reefs.
